I won't bother chronicling all the strange stuff I've found myself embroiled in--often not of my own doing either!--and fast-forward to the latest entry.As you know--unless you've been under a rock for the past week--my family recently took a trip. On that trip we visited not one, not two, but three places with animals. Not so strange, right? Ok, maybe a little...but it starts to getreallystrange when, every time you pull up your camera, you get mooned!Bongo 1...Read more
Our story left off with the end of our visit to the Cincinnati Zoo and the correct spelling of "Cincinnati" burned into my brain for all time. We asked Ms. Garmin, nicely--you never knew what mood she'd be in--if she'd chart us a course to our next destination. She obliged. Hazzah!

So I'm skipping ahead a bit in my family vacation adventures, and I know you're all dying to see our pics of the Cincinnati Zoo, but fear not, I'll get back to it...Day 3 of Operation Family Vacation was spent in Kentucky. After leaving the Cincinnati Zoo in Ohio, we pointed south, dutifully following Miss Garmin's directions (out of fear) and made our way to Cave City. We checked in to a modest hotel, had dinner, then returned to our temporary home to regroup. We realized we could use a fe...Read more
Get a beverage and a snack, this is a looooooooong one...OK, so we've already established my family and i took a mini-vacation less than a week after I returned from Los Angeles. And I think it's already been mentioned that we left last week, Wednesday night, right after boy-child's baseball awards picnic (Note to self: Take pics of boy-child's trophies to show off ). With a large collection of Google Maps, a road atlas and a Garmin on the window, we...Read more
Back in December, girl-child and her choir sang the national anthem for the local minor league hockey game. There was all this garbage about no cameras and no video. Glad to know someone ignored them Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HNx2pCHFuSk
